or is it even steven? >> i think it's flipped. it used to be you had to give a reason for early voting. you had to be disabled or -- wealthy people in florida or business people. now it's all about organizing and getting people there early. in ohio we have what's called the golden week. this was interestingly written by a republican legislature. the law wasself years ago where for one week registration is still open so you can register at the cuyahoga or franklin county or richland county board of elections. you can register to vote and vote in your name trip to the board of elections. >> i like that. >> it really makes sense. we're urging people to come in this week. people particularly who are least likely to be registered an that's people on college campuses coming back to school, more low income people, and people that might have moved for business reasons, whatever, and need to update their registrations. >> okay. here is the battle going on in the air. you were talking the ground game. the obama campaign is running this ad in ohio to attract voters in coal country. let's take a look at th

[ laughter ] >> steve: just like that. >> i was being a brat. >> steve: that's okay. let's talk to you about what the story that the administration has had regarding what gretchen was just talking about with the attacks on our consulate where four americans were murdered. in the beginning they said because of that movie, spontaneous. within 24 hours, they knew that it was terrorism connected perhaps to an al-qaeda affiliate. and we've had mayor rudy guiliani on. we just had lieutenant colonel allen west on the channel. they both say there has been a cover-up on the part of the white house. >> it certainly is very curious that if they kne
in a region where it's been very volatile. these are bureaucratic decisions. and ambassador stevens made the decision to go to benghazi. what problem may emerge here, he went to benghazi with inadequate security. we have to understand that our embassies are not protected and our ambassadors are not protected by the marines or by u.s. personnel all the time. they're protected by the local government officials that provide that security. and chris was known as someone who didn't like the envelope of security around him. i think the real issue here is not so much whether or not the president or the administration was at fault, but whether or not the senior management level at the state department did not do their job adequately to make sure that chris was adequately protected going into a zone that was clearly -- all of us knew was dangerous from the get go. after all, the british ambassador had just come under attack in benghazi a month and a half before chris lost his life >> yes. how do americans separate the facts from politics though, mark, in these kinds of situations from either side

have heard from the president and the man and want to be president. let's begin with you. steven is on the phone from buffalo. a democrat. caller: basically, i feel the role of government is to protect our basic rights, and there is nothing more basic and clean air and clean water. this has been totally forgotten in the last years of debate. ecology is not even mentioned. this basically exemplifies modern man's complete dissociation and disconnection from the natural world to the point that nature distained reading is sustained. that is the basic difficulty. in fact, the attachment is so great, as even skewed perception of physical reality. you are constantly hearing the word growth and overbooking one simple fact. you cannot grow infinitely on a finite planet, fun and natural resources, especially water. all of these candidates are neglecting this. this is life itself, and it has nothing to do with the americans, or europeans, or india. it has to do with the human species. and our survival. i would like these candidates to address the one simple fact, what are you talking about
